The future of Kylian Mbappé remains uncertain after the 24-year-old opted not to trigger the option to extend his current contract to 2025.
As a result, all eyes are on Real Madrid on whether they’ll pursue the France international. Journalist Tomás González-Martín spoke with Bernabéu Digital regarding the possible arrival of the Paris Saint-Germain star to the Spanish giants.
González-Martín notes that if Los Blancos will land Mbappé, they won’t do so on a free transfer even with the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner’s contract expiring next summer.
“Unless he renewed next year with a clause to sign him in the summer of 2024,” González-Martín told the outlet. “PSG is not going to let him leave for free. Yesterday [Nasser] Al-Khelaifi had a meeting with Mbappé, who doesn’t want to say anything, they are talking, and there is sectors of the club in which they ask to sell it.
“Another thing is that they want to sell it to Real Madrid. Manchester United is another option, and it is the play that Real Madrid fears.”
It would be ideal if Mbappé does want to leave PSG he does so on a transfer so that the capital club recoups a transfer fee for him. While the capital club is backed by Qatar, grabbing a player like Vinícius Júnior and cash would be better an ideal offer.
The summer transfer window has just opened, so Real Madrid has time if they want to plot a move for Mbappé.
